The fate of nearly 30 students admitted to Shri Dhanwantry Ayurvedic College, Sector 46, in 2012-13, will be decided in the syndicate meeting that will finalise whether to allow them to appear for the exam from this session or not. The meeting is scheduled to be held on Saturday.

Nearly 30 students of the college have not appeared in any of the annual examinations since their admission in December 2012 due to deadlock between the university and the college over the non-availability of requisite infrastructure in the college.

Last year, the syndicate had allowed the examination of 2013-14 batch but had declined to allow examination of 2012-13 batch, citing that the students were admitted even after the university cancelled the college's affiliation, officials said.

Dhanwantry students have been seeking “sensitive approach” from the university, which has cancelled the affiliation of the college, leaving a number of students enrolled in the institute in the lurch. They have been staging protests outside the syndicate meeting venue and alleging that they were becoming the victim of tussle between the college management and the university.

The syndicate will also discuss the proposal of the University School of Open Learning wherein it has proposed that the course of master of finance and control be discontinued from this academic session.
Agenda on the cards.
